Hello doctor.
I have no hair in my temple part. It's congenitally. And I have no beard so please tell me any solution.
1. Apply mahabhringraj oil on your scalp and massage follow by giving hot water fomentation. You can put 1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils before going to bed. 2. Take pranacharya allergen capsule twice a day. Increase the intake of proteins such as soybean and egg white. It is advisable to avoid tea, coffee, spicy food, fermented food and junk food. Only use ayurvedic shampoo on your scalp and avoid synthetic shampoos. Do pranayama early morning.

How to reduce hair fall in my wife and how to increase long hair and how to maintain healthy hair?

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
How to reduce hair fall in my wife and how to increase long hair and how to maintain healthy hair?
Usage of Aloe Vera can effectively reduce scalp problems like, flaking and itching. The mildly alkaline property of Aloe Vera helps in restoring the natural pH level of the scalp which promotes hair growth. Aloe Vera gel can be effective even for fighting dandruff. Take an Aloe Vera leaf, collect the pulp and apply it to the scalp and hairs. Leave it on for 45 minutes to an hour and wash off the hair with plenty of normal water. Follow this treatment for 3 – 4 times a week for better results. For further queries get back to me.

Scars cannot be removed totally though they can be redused in size. This may need scar revision and fractional laser.

Doctor, please give me a suggestion,

Hello. Are you having dark circles? Dark circles can be temporary (means happens after any recent or chronic diseases or underlying medical condition, insufficient sleep, nutritional deificiency, working long hrs. on computer, lack of rest, stress/ tension, etc.) which can be improved by fixing the underlying cause or the problem or can be inherited from your parent's genes which can't be treated or cured! Management: Eat healthy and on time. Avoid junk. Drink plenty of water (as dehydration can cause dull or patchy skin). Sleep well. Wear anti-glare spectacles while working on computer. Reduce your stress/ tension through yoga, meditation or any other excercises (it not only improves your blood circulation, but also reduces the production of stress hormones by the body as well as increases happy hormones in the body). Use sunglasses regularly and not to forget to apply a thick layer of Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen liberally, 20-30 minutes before stepping out in the sun and apply the same again after 3-4 hours if you have exposure to sunlight for long hours. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Cina 1M/ one dose daily at night for 10 days. Schwabe's Alfalafa Tonic/ 1 tsp thrice a day daily for 20 days and revert me back about the condition. Apply Bakson's Under Eye Cream twice daily (in morning and at night) and Medicynth's Whitch Hazel cream and Bakson's Under Eye cream twice - in morning and at night daily.

Leprosy - Can Homeopathy Help in Treating?

BHMS

Leprosy - Can Homeopathy Help in Treating?

Leprosy is also known as Hansen’s disease. It is a chronic dermatological disorder caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium Leprae. The peripheral nerves and mucosa of the upper respiratory tract are affected by the bacteria. Leprosy starts by the appearance of scaly skin lesions. If not treated in the primary stage, it can progress rapidly and cause permanent damage to the skin. It can damage the eyes, nerves and limbs. Leprosy can be moderately contagious, therefore it is necessary for the patient to be quarantined during the course of the treatment to prevent the spread of disease among other family members.

It has been noticed that after prolonged homeopathy treatment, almost 80% cases have been cured and improved. The patients have recovered senses in their limbs; the wounds have improved and in some cases, miraculously disappeared.

Homeopathy and Leprosy:
There have also been cases where patients have responded better to homeopathic treatment than the multi-drug treatment regime that most doctors prescribe to leprosy patients. This could be because homeopathy is the safest and a non-toxic remedy to most diseases that does not complicate the health by causing adverse side effects.

A wonder medicine used for the treatment of leprosy is an anti-syphilitic medicine called Mercurius Solubilis. With an extremely high potency of 200, it is known to be an excellent remedy for leprosy. Homeopathic medicines are selected based on the symptoms. First the treatment is done on the symptoms so as to provide relief as soon as possible. Homeopathic medicines then act on the root cause of the disease, also providing bacterial resistance. It helps to retard the progress of the disease. Along with it, homeopathic medicines also help to reduce lepra reactions, and start reviving the damaged nerves, limbs and skin. It also strengthens the immunity system.

Some combinations of homeopathic and natural medicines used to treat leprosy are:
1. Thuja
2. Sulphur
3. Tuberculinum
4. Calotropis
5. Chaulmoogra oil
6. Elaeis
7. Hydrocotyle
8. Apis

Never use all that is advertised in TVs and News Papers. Use natural and local items to wash the face like using basin ( the flour of chena dhall) or Moong dhall mixed with the powder of ( tender) turmeric root . Oily face is good since you will look very young even when you become old unlike dry skins which become older when young. Wash the face as many times as possible. You can also use a mild soap. Massage coconut oil on the face every day befor bath and wash away. You will look as fresh as Jasmine and smell nicely too.

Hi I am having small small white patches in my hand near, is it vitiligo? If its vitiligo is control able in early stages? By which test I can find I am having vitiligo?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Bangalore
There is only one way to ascertain vitiligo and that is by examining the area. You have to visit a doctor in person for this. And yes. Vitiligo is curable during the initial stages. Even in advanced stages it is curable but it is difficult if the patches are wide spread. In your case let us first diagnose the condition and then decide on the treatment.
